After a weekend of shopping, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to put a little money back into worthwhile organizations and causes in the community. Today, GiveGab is waiving their 5% fee for all of their non-profit participants.
Organizations in the Ithaca area participating in Giving Day cover a wide spectrum from the SPCA of Tompkins County to the Ithaca Health Alliance to Catholic Charities to the Finger Lakes Toy Library. FoodNet Meals on Wheels, Racker Centers, and the United Way.
Giving Day also serves as the culmination for a monthlong crowdfunding campaign at Cornell University, which is raising money for projects like adding 3D digital projection to Cornell Cinema, an Argentina tour for Cornell Orchestras, a clean water service trip to the Honduras, and free professional apparel to help Cornellians of all backgrounds.
